This is a Fender 2016 Limited Edition Select Lite Ash Telecaster Guitar. This guitar is part of Fender's 2016 Magnificent 7. Designed from the get-go for comfort and playability, as well as stunning style, the limited Edition Fender Select Lite Ash Telecaster is a blinged out version of the classic design. Featuring a hand-selected lightweight ash body, this instrument pictured weighs 6.4 lbs., making it ideal for long playing sessions. Strong and dense, ash is a longtime Fender classic for electric instrument bodies. Notably resonant and sweet sounding, it’s characterized by clearly chiming highs, well-defined midrange and strong low end. This tele also features all gold hardware, a tortoiseshell pickguard and White Blonde lacquer finish make this Telecaster a treat for the eyes as well as the ears. For the finish Fender chose the classic Nitro Finish. Nitrocellulose lacquer is one of the great original-era Fender electric guitar finishes, still used today on select instruments. Thin, porous and delicate, it’s a premium finish prized for sonic qualities that let body woods breathe with their true tonal character and for an appearance that ages and wears in a distinctive way appealing to many players. This Telecaster incorporates a stylishly classic bridge with a rock-solid string-through-body design and three brass “barrel” saddles for an extra touch of original-era authenticity.
In addition this tele features a Birdseye Maple Neck with a modern profile and 9.5"-14" Compound Radius Fretboard for easy playing. The elegant engraved ‘Fender Select’ medallion inlaid into the back of the headstock marks this instrument as a unique, limited-run creation that is authentically Fender. This Telecaster incorporates a stylishly classic bridge with a rock-solid string-through-body design and three brass “barrel” saddles for an extra touch of original-era authenticity. For pickups This Limited Edition instrument features specially voiced pickups meticulously researched and crafted to reproduce the authentic design, voice and performance of specific pickups from 1958. Their superior sound and style is one of the defining hallmarks of this Limited Edition guitar. This guitar wont last. Grab it while you can.
